Overlord (2018)

The following weapons were used in the film Overlord (2018):




Several of the American soldiers carry M1911 pistols as their standard issue sidearms.


Walther P38

SS commander Captain Wafner (Pilou Asbæk) carries a Walther P38 as his sidearm in the film. P38s are also handled and used by several other characters, including Chloe (Mathilde Ollivier).

Submachine Guns

M1 Thompson

Corporal Ford (Wyatt Russell) carries an M1 Thompson as his primary weapon throughout the film, identifiable by its simplified rear L-sight.

The MP40 is used by many of the SS soldiers stationed at the bunker complex. Several of the weapons are also taken by the Allied raiding force and turned against their former owners. As is common in films, the MP40 is incorrectly portrayed as being the most common weapon carried by German troops, although it is at least somewhat conceivable that soldiers guarding a secret research facility may be issued with more of these than would be considered typical.

Machine Guns


The MG34 is the principal machine gun used by the German forces guarding the bunker, seen both in sandbag emplacements and mounted on their vehicles. One of these is captured by the American troops and used by Private Rosenfeld (Dominic Applewhite), who correctly identifies the machine gun as a two-man weapon when he is criticised for not reloading and firing more quickly.
